"Jake Slater, a 17-year-old from Lakeville, led the band Carmen and the Devil through a song he wrote. Slater said it was a love song about making up with his then-girlfriend after a fight.
“I’m living in your sunshine, drinking up all your wine,” Slater sang. “Wasting your time. I’m smiling everlasting, getting nasty but you still act classy.”
Slater stopped singing at one point to allow Jeremy Young, 18, to wail on the saxophone, before 16-year-old Pat Mont banged out some notes on the trumpet. The band maintained the rhythm to allow Slater to unleash a soaring solo."

LAKEVILLE — Fan favorite Carmen and the Devil won the Battle of the Bands competition hosted by Apponequet Regional High School Student Council on Friday night.

Carmen and the Devil consist of Apponequet students Jeremy Young, Ben Young, Pat Mont, Chris Godden, John Krone, Jake Slater, and Evan Field (who was unable to attend the event). Their fusion of jazz, funk, and many other musical styles has helped the band establish a base of over 200 fans, and Carmen and the Devil plays occasional shows in the SouthCoast area.

Other bands performing at the event included the Freeville Fighters, the Nathaniel Bradley Enigma, Melanie Case and Ask Araselle.


The event focused on raising money for Japan, and members of the Student Council donated both their time and money to raise over $650. Food sales alone brought in over $40, and additional donations made to the buckets available in the cafeteria contributed approximately $150. The show featured videos between acts informing people of the disaster in Japan. For more information about donating, please visit www.redross.org.

Bio

Carmen and the Devil has been making noise since the summer of 2008, and since then has expanded from a basic guitar-drums duo to a sprawling seven-man line-up, all of whom having backgrounds in classical and jazz theory on their respective instruments. We've also had much experience in more relaxed, impromptu settings, and have played gigs at various town festivals, restaurants, school events, private parties, and local clubs. We're in the process of recording a 12-song album that eschews labeling, though it touches upon rock, jazz, blues, folk, and progressive music, utilizing both our influences (stretching from Sufjan Stevens to RX Bandits to The Band) and natural inspiration..
